NewsCarl Sederholm's Favorite 'Desert Island' CDs

Progressive Rock

Metallica: Ride the Lightning. I loved metal before I'd ever heard Metallica, but once I picked this one up, I haven't been the same. I know that everybody loves Master of Puppets, but this album is one of the best things Metallica ever did. Just listen to "Fight Fire with Fire," "The Call of Ktulhu" and the title track and you'll be hooked. I won't comment on what's become of Metallica; I'll probably always been listening to this one anyway.

Black Sabbath: Heaven and Hell. There are a lot of people who were not quite old enough to follow Sabbath when Ozzy was still in the band. I'm one of them. To me, Ronnie James Dio-era Sabbath is the band I love. Don't get me wrong, I love the Ozzy stuff, but when I hear "Neon Knights" or "Heaven and Hell" I'm taken back to my early teenage years. Dio raised the bar on an already classic act.

Sleater-Kinney: One Beat. I don't know if our readers know Sleater-Kinney. They're a riot grrrl band out of Washington State and their blend of feminism and post-punk revival is about as good as it gets. One Beat is their finest hour. In my opinion, it is also the best album responding to the politics of War in Iraq and the Bush years.

Iron Maiden: Killers. I'm a big fan of Bruce Dickinson's work with Maiden, but there's just something nearly perfect about Paul Di'Anno's second album with the band. I have spent weeks on end listening to this album and I never get tired of it. I always tell people who ask that Maiden is my favorite band. It's true--and this is my favorite album by them.

Hits: 2718
